"Pay TV" articles

Another day of meetings and discovery at CES 2018. Here are a few additional thoughts on what I have seen at the show on day two. 8K is moving closer to reality. Yes.

By Fredrik Andersson, SVP Business Development and Co-Founder, Accedo At CONNECTIONS next week, I will be joining a panel to discuss OTT video services for a new generation. We will be examining the global impact of OTT services, including market shifts, changes in consumer habits, and strategies to create direct relationships with today’s connected consumer.
